was the point person for president clinton and passing the brady bill in the late part of november 93 and the assault weapon ban in the house in the spring of 94, those two those are very focused on criminal access. president clinton's legislation post-columbine did not pass. so the notion that everybody should rely on the energy and force of newton, i would caution not to do that. it's galvanized the country to have an honest conversation and look internally and had a serious conversation. but the assault weapon ban was done without a columbine would have been in virginia. i do believe just in the last four years on the loudspeakers of politics would have been there has made all of us a discussion that is sitting on the sideline to be focused to introduces legislation or package and decide what legislatively he's going to do by executive order. but we are at a tipping point to have a discussion that's been postponed, delayed. but my small flashing yellow light of caution is anything to laugh time we really had success, which goes back to 93 and 94, those are pretty columbine. his ent

of the 99's under the bill clinton administration. they did it with spending cuts and revenue increases. we had ahe 1990's, combination of things that led to a balanced budget. i think being responsible with our revenue and how we spend it is something all of america is focused on. look what happens when the government is responsible with its revenue. you have the business community living at the government acting responsible with the money. what happens? it means that confidence develops. confidence is such a key ingredient of economic recovery. the stock market went through the roof during the recovery. people got wealthy because of the rise of the stock market. the stock market rose because people had confidence the government was being irresponsible with money. host: we are talking with congressman matthew cartwright, democrat from pennsylvania. he served as an attorney for 24 years. a law degree from the university of pennsylvania law school and representing the state of pennsylvania in the house as well. ent from kennm weeks. let me add to that. guest: ok. that is a boatload of questi
"starting point." hillary clinton's political future might be uncertain but to hear her husband bill clinton tell the story, she's got a long, long time to decide. >> she's always been very, very healthy, and she has very low blood pressure, very low standing heartbeat. i tell her, you know, she's still got time to have three more husbands after me, so i think she'll live to be 120. >> secretary clinton is recovering from a blood clot in her head after a fall. >>> so, not sure how many facebook users will like this, facebook makes you fat apparently. i knew it! that according to a new study from the university of pittsburgh, researchers there say people that use sites like facebook feel so good about themselves that they lose self-control. i know, i know. >> what self-control are you losing on facebook? >> let me finish, michael. the study also finds greater social network use tends to be associated with higher bmi, body mass index, and increased binge eating. >> push away from the table. >> i don't get that. i know that sitting at your computer on facebook for hours and hours and hours migh
republicans are playing catch-up. let's go back to the contract with america with newt gingrich and bill clinton. the party was unified behind the message. today we're all over the place. colin powell is right to certain extent that the republican party has an identity crisis. jon: if you have one person tasked with delivering the message, wouldn't that be impetus to come up with unified cohesive message? >> there is just not one person delivering the message. you have the white house press secretary. when you get down to it, the dnc does social network. they tweet. they do facebook. everything out there reaching out to young people. the grand old party is a little bit old. we need to come into where we embrace technology. jon: henninger made that point but said at least the gop in his view should adopt what he called, 20th century technology and come up with sort of the same thing as a white house spokesperson? >> the grand old party is a big tent party and it is a party inclusive of all. we have the log cabin republicans. we have pro-choice republicans we have moderate republicans. we

president bill clinton surprised everyone when he came out to salute "lincoln," and in the end they laughed, they cried, and, of course, the party continues. >> good night. >> so the golden globe was a night full of surprises, and no bigger surprise than one that the audience didn't actually see. this happened back stage in the press room after "django unchained" quinton terrantino won. the movie has come under scrutiny for the liberal use of the n-word. quinton was candid in his response why he uses it so much. listen. >> if somebody is out there actually saying it when it comes to the word [ bleep ], that the fact that i was using it in the movie more than it was used back in the antebellum south in 1858, well, then they might have -- then feel free to make that case, but no one is actually making that case. so, in other words, what they're actually saying is i should soften it. they are saying i should lie. they are saying i should white wash and massage, and i never do that when it comes to my characters. >> please, [ bleep ], no questions. all right. black people questions are all righ
